The funded activity is the organization of a Special Session on the themes of the proposal (ICT for Societal Challenges, Health/Wellbeing) at the workshop WIRN organized yearly by the Italian Society of Neural Networks (SIREN). At WIRN 2015, the program will also include a panel discussion on the common researches carried out in ASEAN, SEA and EU countries, also promoting the knowledge of the respective programs (that, often, show great overlap). The proceedings of the WIRN conference, including the ones related to this session, will be published by an International Publisher (Springer), in a series coordinated by the professor Lakhmi Jain, University of South Australia and co-edited by some of the proposal partners. This activity would be greatly synergistic with other planned actions, also favored because Professor Vo Van Toi was elected as the Executive Director of the Vietnam Education Foundation.
The major focus of the session will be on the use of ICT for health and well-being, thus illustrating how the development of systems ICT-based can reduce the expenditure of sanitary systems, can allow the monitoring of patients in isles, rural areas and difficult context areas like big cities, and, finally, can improve the quality of life of a large number of people.
The final program of the special session is attached below.
